about the archives. john said it and it's true. people like me who want to research american history are incredibly dependent on the resources of the national archives. i and my research assistants, including josh israel, who is up there someplace and is going to give us some entertainment with johnson and king talking, could not possibly have gotten as far as we got in trying to unravel this story. without the resources of the archives and the unfailingly courteous, bright, helpful people from the archives. i want to personally thank them not only on behalf of myself but in behalf of other people who work in this field. they are just great. the idea of this book was sort of a gamble. it was a hunch. i wondered -- there have been lots of books written about king. there have been lots of books written about johnson. there have been lots of books written about civil rights, but no one had taken johnson and king together, put them under a microscope, and watched what they did day by day through an incredible period of history. a two-year period, from the kennedy's assassination to the p

to sort of talk a -- at 1940, i'm sorry 1820. he writes a letter to john adams and he says our duty as americans is teen neologism he creates the word. jefferson him is creating all these words and some of them -- he creates the word ottoman. not for the empire but for the footstool. there are 114 words now and the oxford english dictionary which are credited to jefferson as a corner or the introducer and the first one to actually bring them into the mainstream. the list is really sort of fascinating. pedicure is his word. i'm sorry. mona craddock meaning a person who is in a single room. the one that he does the most with and becomes the most egregious with the purest and the language police is the word be little. he creates the word be little and he knows he is creating something that is going to be very disturbing and noah webster himself just loves the word. in fact he wanted to know webster's teachers at yale who writes noah webster about the word be little and the british hate the word when fowler comes up with modern english usage in 1938 in the first edition. fowler is still
administered by the chief justice john roberts, jr. the public swearing-in and all the pomp and circumstance that go with it were put off until today and what a day it is. the temperature right now is in the high 30s. the sky is clear, a brilliant winter's day in the nation's capital. people are pouring into the national mall to witness a day of history. the first family began the day by attending services at st. john's church. that's right across the street from the white house. that's a long-standing tradition for presidents on inauguration day. joining me now in our cbs coverage is bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of ""face the nation."" bob, what are you expecting to see? >> well, it's going to be an important day for the nation, but i must say, you know, the fiscal cliff negotiations, the slaughter of those children in connecticut made it difficult for washington to be festive this time around. it's also a very unusual atmosphere because of this gridlock. i mean, you're not hearing people talk about hope and renewal this time around, but is the government bro

of the united states, and on the other, john adams is no more. that celebration, the union and be out, -- the unit in the out, that is what we are looking for, the relationship. you can look at these inaugurations as touchstones along our national narrative of the changes that have taken place. some of them are technological. the question of george washington writing in a carriage, somebody else in a car, the introduction of radio, television and the internet to record these things -- there are different steps along the way to record, but a continuity -- a kind of reassuring continuity that is important for holidays. you know that thanksgiving in our houses like this. we serve mashed potatoes this way. we have our inaugurations this way. there is very much the same kind of spirit. i pulled a few simple things to give you a sense of the taste and feel of inaugurations. one aspect of inaugurations really from the very beginning is the inaugural ball. these are celebrations in which this candidate, now president, is introduced to the public thomas as well as celebrations of everybody com
weren't. john mccain said i would have liked to see a little more on outreach and working together. there was not, as i have seen in other inaugural speeches. i want to work with my colleagues. and i'm wondering what you think about this approach and i think that the push-back isn't surprising as much as we're surprised by just how strongly worded it was. >> republicans wasted no time whatsoever rebuking the president and the president, to be fair, this was not a speech about conciliation or compromise and in fact, the clip we heard about a nation of takers, referring to medicare and medicaid and social security, was basically a direct rebuke to congressman paul ryan, who was mitt romney's running mate. so the republicans have lots to bicker with, lots to single out in the president's inauguration speech, including the president didn't write it with the thinking of this is going to be a reach across the aisle type of message. >> yeah, obviously a very clear choice he made. let me play for you what senator tom coburn just said on "morning joe." >> i think he missed some opportunitie

that the president's proposals are rolling in. the speaker john boehner said they will review the republicans and warned good intentions do not necessarily make good laws. the senator said president obama is abusing his power with the executive orders and the senate will hold the first post new town committee in two weeks. we know how the nra feels before the president took the mike, the powerful gun lobby took a strike infuriating straightics with an ad that infolks his daughters. >> the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about armed security when his kids are protected by armed guards in their school. >> the white house called that ad repugnant and cowardly. we kick things off with peter alexander outside the white house. run down the major takeaways from the president in the executive orders he issued. >> you played the best highlights from today's event, but this was an emotional heart felt appeal from the president encouraging anybody paying attention across america to reach out directly to their congress people, saying congress must act on this issue. you ra

it the first time. good job, john. the president will again the lay hand on the bible, january 20th required by the constitution but since it's a sunday, the parades, balls and public swearing in, the fourth oath, pushed until monday the mlk holiday. such poetic justice, that. don't expect the record turnout of 2009. a new poll shows fewer americans like president obama right now and his policies versus 2009. only 43% are optimistic about the next four years but his job approval rating still tops 50%. only two presidents after world war ii scored higher approval ratings in the second term and president obama's already on track to join them. let's start with nbc's kristin welker outside the white house as usual. kristin, the preps are going on behind you. walk us through the highlights. >> reporter: a lot of highlights, good afternoon, toure. you are right. this year not as big as 2009 but the city is bustling with preparations. take a look at the inauguration by the numbers. we have some of the key figures for you. back in 2009, 1.8 million people turned out. this year, expecting 600,000 to

"morning joe" starts right now. >> hey, baby! f >> we must make the choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its futur future. >> the commits we make with medicare and social security, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> wow, look at the crowd. this is a full bar the day after all the natural balls. i'm not sure what's going on her
for reelection. against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seen to believed bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected a favorable referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communication skills of a candidate cannot be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different evaluation that merits being taken into account in judging between an income, barack obama, and his challenger, mitt romney. that is the chinks of the second term on too many presidents. 27 of 19 presidents -- only seven of 19 presidents elected to a second term avoid having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 30% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security of economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest that the gamble should not be taken. simply, that history into playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history predicted about a second term for barack obama lacks were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office. what are the
faithfully. >> when chief justice john roberts administered the oath to barack obama on january 20, 2009, there was a major problem. roberts was supposed to say "i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. " barack obama stopped and paused and smiled as if to say, come on, man, this is my big day. you have to get this right. unfortunately, he did not get it right so the very next night in the white house, they did it again. this time roberts used notes which he had not used the first time and they got it right. >> we walk for the history of democracy's big day monday at 8:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m. eastern. this is part of a three-day holiday weekend on c-span 2's book-tv. >> the greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. this honor now beckons america, the chance to lead the world at last out of the valley of turmoil and onto that high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization >> must embark on new programs, scientific investments and the improvement of underdeveloped areas. >> of this weekend, public radio'
, if john boehner and mitch mcconnell think that they can come up with a plan that somehow meets their criteria that they've set for why they will -- when they will raise the debt ceiling, they're free to go ahead and try. but the proposals that they've put forward in order to accomplish that -- only by cutting spending -- means cuts to things like medicare and education that the american people profoundly reject. now, if they think that they can get that through congress, then they're free to try. but i think that a better way of doing this is go ahead and say, we're going to pay our bills. the question now is how do we actually get our deficit in a manageable, sustainable way? and that's a conversation i'm happy to have. all right. matt spetalnick. >> thank you, sir. you've spoken extensively about the debt ceiling debate, but some republicans have further said that they're willing to allow a government shutdown to take place rather than put off deep spending cuts. are you prepared to allow the government to grind to a halt if you disagree with the spending cut proposals they p
the honorable louie gohmert to act as speaker pro tempore on this day, signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by the guest chaplain, reverend andrew walton, capitol hill presbyterian church, washington, d.c. the chaplain: let us pray. god of light and life, we give thanks for the gift of the day. a day which stands on the threshold of possibility and potential for the presence and power of love. love ensconced in every human at creation. love, which we are called to share with one another, as well as with creation itself. as we begin a historic weekend of service, celebration, and inauguration, fill us with your creative imagination to find our way to reconciliation where there is separation. to mercy where there is judgment. and to peace where there is violence. hold each of us, our leaders, our nation, and our earth in your eternal care. amen. the speaker pro tempore: the chair has examined the journal of the last day's proceedings and announces to the house his approval thereof. pursuant to clause 1 of rul
court said it was unconstitutional. >> you did? >> so you agree with john roberts? >> yes. >> you did. i'm surprised. because in that case -- so through the use of the commerce clause we can now mandate that people buy things? >> no, he didn't say you could use the commerce clause. he said you could not use the commerce clause. >> right. >> what he said was it was a tax. >> must have been a mix-up in the prenotes of the preinterview. but let's see a shot in freeze frame. this is the face of a truly confused man. the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top here, folks. if only sean hannity would listen to his boss, he might not be so confused. "the constitutional right about guns is for self-defense and hunting. founders did not mean modern weapons of war." lining up the crazy is not a difficult task for the right wing these days. but this rhetoric and hysteria i think is very dangerous. there is no basis to call the president of the united states a tyrant or a dictator, and no president ever deserves to be compared to stalin or hitler. but of course it continues. it happened earlier t
of independence was signed, virginia statesman john page wrote to thomas jefferson -- we know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?'' much time has passed since jefferson arrived for his inauguration. the years and changes accumulate. but the themes of this day he would know -- our nation's grand story of courage and its simple dream of dignity. we are not this story's author, who fills time and eternity with his purpose. yet his purpose is achieved in our duty, and our duty is fulfilled in service to one another. never tiring, never yielding, never finishing, we renew that purpose today, to make our country more just and generous, to affirm the dignity of our lives and every life. this work continues. this story goes on. and an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm. god bless you all, and god bless america. >> up next, senate historian don ritchie gave a historical perspective on inaugurations describing how various treated -- and that we will show presidential inauguratio
on this historic day. may all mighty god bless them and our country over the years. it seems like it was john boehner with the flags that flew over the capital during the inaugural ceremony. it seems like during some of the post inaugural address interviews, they did not give a hundred percent embrace. but they seem to feel the president was magnanimous and there was not the bipartisan -- the partisan bickering, at least not today. tomorrow is another day. >> right. we'll see when they start go earning. but the transition of power does matter. the fact that we transition in this way that people are -- i mean, my favorite two shot, so far, my favorite image, is that that included beyoncyonce stand near paul ryan and there was this vision of them together. this is fun. this is kind of american politics and culture, you know, crossing these lines. and will it hold? perhaps not. but for a moment, it is a recognition that we don't have violent military coups in this country. we have a peaceful transition of power. >> you also saw there chairman frank as the reference in terms of his speech where h
in an open car . john f. kennedy had a blizzard the night before his inauguration. students came out to help shovel snow so they could have a parade the next day. people who want to kennedy's inauguration, the first thing they talk about is whether that date. ather that day.a what about the vice president? it used to be there was a tradition that the vice- president got his own inauguration. when the congress and presidents to use to begin their terms on march 4, the first thing that would happen is the house and senate would me to swear in their new members. the first and had to do was where in the vice president -- think they had to do was where in the vice president. presidents of united states used to go to the senate chamber to watch their vice president be sworn in. the senate is to give the vice- president a chance to deliver his own inaugural address. i am sure joe biden would love to have that opportunity. it did not always work out well for vice presidents. in 1865, lincoln's second term, that's significant speech will remember -- that magnificent speech, healing speech -- his vice
. now let's go to the other house. let's read, and i'll read for you, what senator john cornyn said. he said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and i think these issues are much easier to extract from the democrats/the white house because the short-term bumps are going to put a lot of pressure and lot of press in my opinion on the main issue and the main is
